    I have a 2003 Jeep Wrangler TJ 4.0 and the other day we took my trailer and two kayaks to go fishing. The drive over there was fine but when we were done and on our way home I noticed my Jeep was pulling to the right and when braking it would pull hard to the left. The only difference from the...

    I’m about to have my rear upper and lower adjustable control arms installed. I’m not exactly sure what a alignment shop does or uses but I’d like to do it myself if possible. 1: how do I do an alignment of the axles? So far I will be adjusting my lower CA to match my stock CA length (OME 2”...

    I hit a retaining wall and now my steering wheel is off from 12:00 when the wheels are straight. It's tracking pretty straight so I am assuming this has something to do w/the R&P. I need to move the wheel so that I can see the speedometer (I guess the wheel is at ca. 8-9 o'clock). How can I...

    Couple months ago I installed an aftermarket tie rod and drag link on my 2015 JKU Sport. I attempted to maintain the same length for each. Maybe I did; maybe I didn’t. Not sure. It seems I did for the tie rod, as I used the Steer Smarts toe alignment plates, and I measured the front tires to be...

    Longish story. Installed (Teraflex 2.5 S/T Suspension Lift with fox 2.0s plus some 35s) about three weeks ago. Took it in for an alignment at Firestone (which might be where I messed up) camber and caster was fine after the install but front was pigeon toed as per the first picture. They fixed...

    Hi everyone, I have a 2018 JK Sahara and I recently installed a 3" coil spacer lift, shock extenders (front and rear), longer sway bar end links, and 37" tires. I got the tires balanced and I got the car aligned immediately after the lift. The car pulls left like crazy and is very annoying to...

    I recently installed Steer Smarts front track bar bracket, Yeti XD track bar, XD top mount drag link, and XD Tie Rod. Noticed the install instructions specifically recommend 1/4" toe OUT (0.5 degrees) to prevent "death wobble". Everything I've seen for JKs recommends toe IN of varying degrees...

    Just got a 3 year pre-owned JKU Sahara (7,000k miles, newly returned lease) and it’s my first ever wrangler. Whenever I am driving on the right side of the road I find that I have to hold the steering wheel slightly (see picture) to the left so that it doesn’t steer right into the curb...

    This may or may not come to anyone's surprise but at least some of our jeeps are coming out of the factory with a bad wheel alignment. There are other threads discussing the amount of play in the steering wheel, jeep being all over the road and so on. My jeep is stock with less the 2K miles on...

    I hope that all of your days were better than mine. My Jeep is driving me nuts (pun intended). I've recently installed a lift and 35" tires on my Jeep and although I love the way it looks, it pulls horribly to the right. I'm talking when accelerating, decelerating, coasting and braking. When...

    I need help getting my Jeep straight again. Two years ago I hit a curb (avoiding a full paint bucket) blew out a tire and replaced it. After 2 years of rotations and wear and tear on those tires they all needed to be replaced. 65k miles. Never had an issue or pull on my steering wheel. I...

    Hey Guys- I had a front end collision recently- thanks to steel bumper my JK looked without a scratch, but the steering wheel was a bit off. Went to the alignment shop to have it straightened out, and they did. A few days later though, after a couple bumps and 50 miles or so, the steering wheel...

    I had my wheels aligned after my Mopar 2" lift kit was installed. We left the caster bolts off, because caster bolts suck. I do notice the difference in steering, though, so I'm going to install Rancho's control arm drop brackets. Will I need a front end alignment after install?

    Hi All, I have searched YouTube and the forums, but haven't found a solid recommendation to fix my driver's side door alignment issue. The bottom right corner does not close flush against the body. If I push on it to try to make it flush, it does not move in at all. I see recommendation to...

    so about a month ago i was cruising on a gravel road and accidently hit a hidden stump going about 10-15 mph. hitting the stump caused my steering wheel to be turned about 90 degrees to the left. i didnt have the tools on me to straighten it out so i was forced to drive it the 2 mile distance to...
  16. JK General Discussion
    I got a metalcloak 3.5" lift installed about 2 months ago by a local tire shop in Frederick, MD and ever since I drove it off the lot from my ESP goes off when I take sharp/ish turns going above 25mph. At first I thought that maybe it was because my 35" tires on the STOCK wheels or that the tire...

    Hello, Can someone familiar with Jeep alignments look over this alignment breakdown and let me know if it looks good? I have a 2012 JKUR with a 4" Tereflex Lift with adjustable flex arms. I am running 37" Cooper MTT Pros, Teraflex Tera 44 Dana 44 axle housing, and a Spicer front driveshaft...

    I took the jeep in a few months ago for an oil change, rotation and alignment. The dealership said it was out of alignment and they fixed it, but only a few thousand miles later and it's out of alignment again (constantly having to counter steer left, but never right). My only other vehicle was...

    Hey All - So I did some additional suspension work (front upper and lower adjustable control arms, front and rear adjustable trackbar) and needed to get the vehicle aligned. My JK has stock drive shafts and a Teraflex 2.5 inch lift (so far stock wheels and tires as well). So here is where the...
